• Stay in the Vineyards

Retreat to the quiet calm of a vineyard. Book your accommodation at a local winery and you’ll be toasting to the stars.

LynneVale Estate in picturesque Mandurang is only minutes from the city centre, and yet it feels a world away. Its four-star bed and breakfast features three rooms, all with ensuites, and shared living spaces to get social around the open fire in winter, or the outdoor area in summer.

Sandhurst Ridge in Marong offers two luxury cottages with raked ceilings, modern fixtures and ensuites. When you’ve finished exploring the vineyard, borrow a bike and hit the Bendigo Winery Cycling Trail to visit the neighbours.

At Balgownie Estate in Maiden Gully it’s all about the glamping. Cosy down in a bell or safari tent overlooking the property. They combine quirk and luxury for a memorable stay. There’s also a contemporary homestead with seven bedrooms and two cottages, all with stunning views.
